For several years now, DMAN has placed a focus of its work on the promotion and qualification of women from developing and emerging countries and from the partner regions of Lower Saxony and has developed targeted programmes for this purpose.
Recently, the Academy conducted these two projects in Tanzania:
„Fit for Female Leadership“, Part II
The second part of the project "Fit for Female Leadership" for young leaders from the United Republic of Tanzania took place from 8 to 12 May 2023. The seminar was held in Stone Town, a district of Zanzibar, the capital of the Tanzanian state of the same name.
The aim of the project is the sustainable further development and consolidation of the participants' competences already fostered in the first project part in 2022, such as the development of self-learning skills, self-leadership and self-efficacy. The measure was funded by the Ministry of Education of Lower Saxony and the Ministry of Information, Youth, Culture and Sports in Zanzibar.
With this project, women were given the opportunity to strengthen and express their competences in cooperation with the male participants. The quantitative distribution of 2/3 women and 1/3 men was to ensure that the women strengthened each other and learned in the workshop to assert themselves against men. The target group consisted of young professionals. The project was funded by the Lower Saxony Ministry for Social Affairs, Labour, Health and Equality.
"Young Leadership – Empowering Girls to Promote Gender Equality"
Against the background of the partnership between the state of Lower Saxony and Tanzania, DMAN wants to further promote gender equality in the African country. In this project, the focus was placed on young women aged 14-15. The girls attend the final class of the Filbert Bayi Secondary School (FBSS) in Kibaha, Tanzania.
Showing a lot of commitment, trainer Angela Daalmann carried out the measure from 2 to 5 May 2023. The girls learned about their resources, practised setting their own goals and formed networks for the future when they will start their professional lives. The project was funded by the Lower Saxony Ministry for Social Affairs, Labour, Health and Equality.
